Road Cycling Highlight
The hamlet of San Pellegrino in Alpe has a pilgrimage church which is clearly visible above the valley.
From the village you have an impressive view over the Garfagnana, the Apennine ridge and the Apuan Alps.
Once you have arrived from Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, the path to the Passo delle Radici is not far away. However, you have a pretty demanding tour behind you and get on the way here so many 18% shield to face.
Still ... it's worth it.
